Online Safety at Home 

Online Safety is a high priority at HPS. The internet can play an important role in a child’s life and education, but outside school, even with parental controls, it can still pose substantial danger and risk.  We teach a thorough programme of e-safety in every year group. Still, technology moves quickly, and we endeavour to keep a careful eye on the current situation.

New games and trends appear with increasing regularity, and it is not always possible for families to keep abreast of the 'latest thing' that children are discussing or looking at. Unfortunately, quite often, seemingly safe websites and games have proven to be inappropriate and bypassed parental control settings.

Here you will find useful links to websites offering up to date internet safety advice and information. It will be updated regularly.
